So I got all these flours what my mom planted years ago and my dad grew as well and they've grown ever since and they've propagated quite well and I REALLY need to thin out the back yard but anyway this is the American 'Rose of Sharon' which a rose of sharon by any other name could be several different flowers but this is also called a Common His Biscuit.

Yes these are all from the same family called Malvaceae. It is also the national flower of South Korea and is mentioned in the South Korean national anthem. While the other hibiscus which flower dark red colour are called as Chinese hibiscus, China rose, Hawaiian hibiscus, rose mallow and shoeblackplant.

Also related to Hollyhocks and okra. Just so you know. Also can be several different colors depending on what pollinators bring in to share. At my other house I had everything from pure white through shades of pink and purple. I have not had any red ones, but I did have doubles sometimes.
